Re: 60k Service

everything can be done by a competent mechanic. what you may want to do is provide whoever does it the parts. or do it yourself.

so this way you choose what gets put in. like get the proper HOAT antifreeze. if the trans is getting done by the filter from the stealer. the fluid you can get to spec anywhere. same with axles. spark plugs go to wkjeeps they have the correct champion number any auto parts can sell you the right ones. check rockauto for stuff like a serpentine belt.

if you dont ahve one guy you trust then do it one thing at a time. feel the place out. I stumbled upon a great AAMCO that will do any service for cheap. and he does great fast work. found him when i had a leak between tranfer case and trans on the XJ. I swear I called the stealer "$660 plus" i cold called this guy "hang on i just did one, we replace both sides fluid, hang on, 229.xx with tax and all. drop it morning pick it up afternoon.

anyway point is there are competent guys but even if yu get mediocre its ok as nothing on the list is surgery.

or maybe I need to shut up as you plan on doing it ALL yoursself.

Re: 60k Service

I just had the t-case done for $17 total labor w/ Mopar NV245 totaling $42 parts/labor. The dealer couldn't quote me b/c the tcase is part of a front/rear diff service package or whatever.. so they said it could cost anywhere from $99 on up.. GTFO thankyouverymuch.

Re: 60k Service

Lol. My dealership said they would charge $105! I did it myself for $60! (Buying the Fluid and Pump Thing to pump the fluid into the T-case)

Re: 60k Service

Oh and btw the T-Case fluid was sooo clean.. I easily could have ignored it for longer but I did it so I can be ready for my 120k service when it arrives, which it will, b/c I'm running this thing to the ground.

Re: 60k Service

Although I do most of the work myself, I've found that it can sometimes be cheaper using the dealer. I now have a regular guy I use for any jobs I'm incapable of or don't have the equipment for, but I've found in the past that I could get someone for half the dealers hourly rate, but, because they weren't used to working on Jeeps, they could take two or three times as long to do the job. So it could work out more expensive.

Certainly shop around, as Rob says there are good guys out there.

Re: 60k Service

Just had this done for $275.00 at Midas/Speedee service. Overall experience was great and Ruby is much happier. 61,000 on the odometer

Front and rear diff service
Transfer case service
Transmission service
Mobil 1 oil change (I provided 7 quarts of oil because they are not a Mobil 1 shop)

I change my own plugs.
